Massive Transfusion Protocol in Adult Trauma Population

Meneses, E., Boneva, D., McKenney, M., et al. (2020). Massive Transfusion Protocol in Adult Trauma Population. (Abstract only.) The American Journal of Emergency Medicine. 38(12):2661-2666.
This literature review provides information on massive transfusion protocols (MTP), which are typically used at trauma centers to quickly provide blood to bleeding patients. The authors found that protocols should use between 1:1:1 and 1:1:2 ratios of plasma, platelets, and red blood cells. MTP were effective at reducing mortality, especially when blood products were available and administered as soon as the patient arrived to the trauma bay.
